    One of those, “Hey, it’s that guy!” actors from the golden age of television. He was in the original Twilight Zone, the Outer Limits, Hawaii Five-O, Columbo, M*A*S*H, and the list goes on and on. We’re losing too many good ‘uns lately. RIP

    I remember him best from Buck Rogers. A good character actor that I enjoyed in all the roles I saw him in. Sorry to see he died, although 90 is a good old age. RIP Tim.

    90 is a good run no matter how you look at it. And “peacefully, in his sleep,” well, who could possibly ask for more?

    To me he always looked like a Gerry Anderson character.
